On June 9th Venus enters Gemini and we wish to spend time on intellectual interests and intellectual hobbies. Most of us will really enjoy communicating with people in general. June 17th’s full moon in Sagittarius it is a good opportunity for a revelation of some kind. For the more pragmatic, it is important to see the big picture, before setting goals. Be a little cautious around June 21st when Neptune goes retrograde in Pisces! Neptune retrograde can cause distorted reality. It can be hard to focus on what is real as opposed to what is unrealistic. If you have a birthday in June then you can expect a year ahead filled with communication, movement and lots of emotional bias. Make an effort to stay clear headed! On the word scene it’s a month of emotionally charged politics and over idealism! Locally make an effort to stay grounded. Get out in the garden, breathe, stay in the now.

Astral Meanders: Winter Solstice 2019
In the Southern hemisphere, Yule is celebrated on June 21st and June 22nd, and in the Northern hemisphere it falls on the 21st and 22nd of December.
Yule falls at the Midwinter Solstice, when the nights are longer and the days shorter than at any other time of the year. It marks the mid-point of winter and brings the promise of new beginnings as we move out of the darkness and into lighter, warmer days. Traditionally Yule logs are burned. The Yule log must be the root of a hardwood tree, and in Australia mallee roots are ideal for this purpose, as are all types of Eucalyptus. The Yule log is burned down until nothing but a small section remains, which is saved and kept, to be used as a lighter for the following year’s Yule fire. Other ways to honour this seasonal transition are to light candles to symbolize the increasing light and to make orange pomanders to decorate and freshen the home. The orange is a symbol of the return of the sun. For our inner workings the return of the light is time to plant seeds, think about new beginnings and new projects, it’s a time to rebirth ourselves in some way.
